Day 305 Putting On The First Rafters

We started putting the rafters on today. We got 4 of them done. They are 2x8 by 20 feet long. We've got 20 of them to put on and that is the major ones. We'll still add some shorter ones that don't go up all the way. We want the super big over hangs to keep moisture off the walls. You can also see a section of test cob right behind us.. It's mud, straw, and sand. We replaced sand with limestone and are testing it. So far so good. It's kinda fun and good exercise making the cob. The next picture will probably be one of the last from the top since we'll be covering it up soon when the roof is done. We still need to finish thee second top plate in some sections.
